Consumer Reports available through the FEL (for FREE!)

I just returned from doing customized reference training for Marion County Public Library staff. One of the sources they got REALLY excited about was the ability to access Consumer Reports directly from the front page of the Florida Electronic Library so I promised I would share that tidbit with the larger world. So here goes....

If you haven't taken a look at the Florida Electronic Library (FEL) in a while you should. They've changed search engines, replacing what they were using with the much more functional PowerSearch from Gale. They've also added a Popular Magazines & Journals section to the right side of the front page. If you click on any of the logos, you'll go directly into the Publication Search for that title. Patrons can easily click on any of the logos and search for articles within the magazine. They can do this in the public library or from anywhere else with their public library barcode number.
